You will either be a compelling student of interest and reap the rewards, or you will not.
Compelling- evoking interest, attention, or admiration in a powerfully irresistible way
To most students, the word "compelling" brings the same reaction as the word "marketing". Few students want to put in the work and effort to be compelling, be of interest to others, engage with others in meaningful discussion, market themselves to others, or express their vision and plan for success to others. All of that takes a conscious effort to learn and execute. Few are born with these natural instincts and tendencies. For all others, they need to be learned and practiced.
You see, kids can get through high school without having to be of interest to others. But the success of college-bound students relies heavily on having these abilities along with the willingness to use them.
There are several opportunities for students to be compelling.
- An introductory email
- An introductory video
- An introductory phone call
- An on-campus meeting
- An application interview
- An application essay
- Having a blog site (our student specialty)
- Follow-up and follow through
The good news is that all of these are controllable by the student. It all rests within their mindset.
